№ 28. Manila Extract

You are dense.
An equation of salty noodles 
steaming in my cup.

You are stained.
A peppered whisper
left by the ketchup on my lips.

You are Manila.
A name seasoned by monsoons
stirring needles in my guts.

  2. Yeah! Inspired by a midnight snack of lucky me noodles, while the rain emptied Kabayan into the streets.

    Thanks Teacup =)
